One thing that could help Vice President Biden, Major Buttigieg, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, and Andrew Yang immensely is the House Democrats passing impeachment.

Traditionally, the Senate would take over the impeachment case since the house has passed it, but with Speaker Pelosi slow-walking the bill over to the Senate, current Democratic senators running for president are now at a major disadvantage. In a Senate trial, all the senators have to be present for the trial. The jurors for the impeachment trial are the senators, five of whom are currently running in the Democratic primary for president.

This means that Senator Warren, Senator Sanders, Senator Klobuchar, Senator Booker, and Senator Bennet all would likely be limited to campaigning in areas very close to Washington DC. This means that all their campaigns will lose ground in the primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and North Carolina. Depending on the timing of the start of the impeachment trial, it could even affect the 14 states that have primaries on March third.



With so many active senators running in the Democratic primary, the impeachment trial will throw the Democratic primary into complete chaos. The obvious benefactors are Vice President Joe Biden, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg. With four out of the top eight candidates (Warren, Sanders, Klobuchar, and Booker) being removed from campaigning in these important states, we could see a situation where many of their passionate supporters are disgruntled voters in November of 2020.

The only option for these senators to stay competitive is to spend a lot of money on flying and advertisements to try to make up for the loss of a ground game. Only time will tell if any of these senators will be able to attract enough voters to stay competitive in a pretty crowded field.

  1. The Congress under Pelosi is a third world banana republic that has no regard for the rule of law nor the U.S. Constitution. They should be voted out in 2020.

  16. These leftist kooks make me angrier by the minute. Few, if any will abandon Trump. He’s gaining more and more support daily. And woe be it to any republican who votes for this sham.

  18. i agree with most in what i have read here, but remember McConnell is in charge of the impeachment the president has no say in how to run it or control it,there will be a supreme court justice to dish out the law, the president can not pick his own judges for the trial,they way you beat Nancy and the rest of the low life’s is to have the people on both sides show there evidence and the presidents lawyers will take it from there,that is what is called a trial,let the the democrat’s call who they want look it has been three years they have nothing,the republicans need to show america they have nothing to hide that will make the democrat’s look like the losers in all of this.no matter what happens you will still have a divided country you will always have people on both sides saying they won.but in the end president trump and america are the whiners

  19. With RBG claiming that Senators need to be impartial, won’t Senator Warren, Senator Sanders, Senator Klobuchar, Senator Booker, and Senator Bennet need to recuse themselves?

  20. Sorry, pretty dull article. The campaign time lost means nothing. The senators will be the focus of the media and every word they utter will be broadcast. Campaign gold.
    What really matters is Trump’s political opponents sitting in judgment of him. This is an outrage, and you can bet the Pubs will take every possible advantage of bringing it to light.

  21. This whole Impeachment process was concocted from thin air, then investigated as if it were the truth, with a finding that was already known before the president even took office. None of the 2nd and 3rd party hearsay, assumptions, presumptions, unfounded allegations, and uncorroborated accusations would ever have been allowed in an actual court of law-where only actual evidence is allowed.
